Maintaining your horsebox should be simple and worry free. We offer a range of services to help keep your horsebox on the road and ready when you need it.
GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT AND PAYLOAD ASSESSMENT
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) are now carrying out Gross Vehicle Weight inspections on horseboxes. In 2014 the DVSA reported that over 40% of the horseboxes weighed were overloaded e.g. the payload was too high for the vehicle. This is very concerning as an overloaded vehicle may invalidate your insurance, be illegal to drive and be unsafe.
If you are concerned that your horsebox may be overweight, we advise you locate a local public weighbridge (see www.gov.uk/find-weighbridge) where you can weigh your horsebox for a small fee.
If your vehicle is overweight, we may be able to help without you replacing your horsebox. Please feel free to contact us and we’ll assess and discuss your options to see whether your existing vehicle can be “uprated” to increase the Gross Vehicle Weight and in turn improve Payload capacity.
SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE
As specialists in horseboxes we understand the need to keep not only the vehicle well maintained but also the horsebox body and equipment so it’s ready for action when you need it. We offer a broad range of services including: -
Lubrication – engine oil, filter and oil coolers
Filtration - air and pollen filters
Braking – brakes discs, pads and wear sensors
Suspension – springs, dampers, suspension arms, ball joints and bushes
Steering – steering rack and track rod ends
Heating and cooling – heater matrix, air con system, condensers

Locks – keys, remotes, immobilisers
MOT testing and Plating
Horsebox body and equipment inspections eg. horsebox floor, walls, bulkhead, doors, roof, etc.
Whilst a MOT gives you peace of mind that your vehicle is roadworthy the inspection does not assess the condition of the body of the horsebox. Our Horsebox Health Check is a free of charge inspection that assesses the condition of your horsebox body and fittings. You'll be notified of any areas of concern along with a quotation to repair or replace the item so you can decide what to do.
